I have been working at Factory Design Labs full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Factory is a really big family. The teams work together on behalf of our clients and everyone helps each other. People work extremely hard here as they always want to deliver for Factory and the clients. It's a work hard, play hard culture. People either thrive in the organization or quickly Get ejected. There is no room for creative egos or people who don't get their hands dirty. Everyone here is in it to win.

Cons

A service business is always hard no matter where you work. The hours and client demands can be too overwhelming for some. Factory is quick to promote you if you are really good and quick to exit you are not.. It's that simple. You have to be awesome to make it at Factory.

Advice to Management

Keep up the good work. Your past growth and successes speak for themselves. Factory is a really cool place, like no other agency out there. Thank you for the opportunity to work here.

    Pros

    If you've ever worked in the outdoor or action sports industry, you know they hate traditional advertising. Factory is the same, there is a different way of doing things here. It's not about water-cooler talk of what other agencies are up to, it's about being focused on creating work you are proud of and finding insights that speaks to core consumers to call bullsh*t when work is not authentic.

    Cons

    It's a passionate business. People work really hard. Emotion can lead to a bad break up in any relationship. In the past, there has been some negative blood that ran through the building, but those people have left. The building feels alive and healthy. Everyone is trying their best and there's a great sense of community.

    The bad press on Factory sucks. It misrepresents all the hard work and genuine effort people put into their jobs everyday.

    Pros

    A great culture with a lot of smart people who are really into their craft and willing to work together. Creative, fun, and professional.

    Cons

    While FDL is pretty lean there will always be unneeded process and bureaucracy. It might be inevitable at this scale, but it sure can inhibit execution.

    Advice to Management

    Next to practicing my craft, sharing it with others is vital. In 2013, no creative entity should resist an openness to communal participation in their industry(s).
